Thanks for previous help and bearing with my Qs on new to me 2000
Good news is I have the I +T shop manual.
1) Ignition timing/tuneup Qs?
a) I +T manual gives a way to set timing that involves checking both mech and cent. advance mechs, but no "simple" method. Also mentions "high idle" but no RPM given, I assume this is fast enough to kick in full mech. adv.
(E.g "simple method" = at ide and vac advance plugged set timing at ____ degrees, or static timing using test light.)
b) Site here lists timing at 3o BTDC at 475 rpm (low idle?) , I assume with vac advance plugged? Can you use this setting to static time with a 12v test lamp on points ? (assuming both adv. mechs are O.K.?)
I've done a lot of other old motors using static timing.
Also , while I'm in doing points, lube shaft for cent. advance mech?
b) "best " tune up kit at Carquest or use OEM Ford/Motorcraft? I found NOS/OEM Motorcraft kit for same price as Carquest on ebay (motorcraft, std. ignition, and bluestrak parts).
c) Tire chains.
I see lots of ads giving length and width of chains, but no tire sizes. Any charts that list chain size to tire size?
I'm running 12.4 X 28 on the 2000 and 11.2 X 28 on my N.
Can you use oversize chains and overlap the length a bit?
d) Genny question. No mention of polarizing Genny in I +T manual. I assume use same method as for a N except that 2000 is - ground?
I +T manual lists several fluids for tranny, PS, rear/hyd
